Yesterday, 30 July, was the anniversary of the death of Rudolf Bultmann. To mark the occasion, Jim West offers a list of Bultmann’s best books, as well as a series of posts about little-known aspects of Bultmann’s life and work. Did you know, for instance:
- that Bultmann was a pious churchgoer?
- that he wrote an early book on patristic exegesis?
- that he wrote fables (myths!) for his wife during their courtship?
